Joseph Phelps Insignia 2014 Red Blend 750 mL

"Joseph Phelps Insignia 2014, Napa Valley. One of Napa’s Crown Princes, from the middle of the region’s golden streak of vintages, ironically elevated by the long drought. I had the opportunity to taste this vintage alongside the previous 2013, and the differences are slight but noticeable. The ’13 has a more friendly fruit weight but the ’14 is structured, dense and timeless, perhaps due to the rare omission of Merlot in that year’s blend. As close as Insignia has come to the “classic Napa” style in some time, with chocolate and coffee notes bracing the “Night Of A Thousand Berries” nose that is so characteristically Phelps. 2014 is Motorhead compared with 2013’s Elton John, focused and hardcore, not really caring what you think of it… yet. Another Insignia for the ages" As described by our vintage room expert, Jordan Carrier.

  • Opening with heady blackberry and plum aromatics laced with baking spices, cardamom and espresso. Focused and fresh, this exceptionally concentrated wine showcases elegant tannin structure and a silky mouthfeel layered with dark fruit, sweet vanilla bean, cracked black pepper and bittersweet chocolate.
  • With the Joeseph Phelps estate vineyards in some of Napa Valley’s finest appellations and growing regions, since 2004, Insignia has been 100% estate grown, a blend of the best wine lots from our vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, the Stags Leap District, the Oak Knoll District and South Napa Valley. Estate vineyards give the winemakers complete control over the quality of their grapes, and provide our winemaker with profound resources when it comes to creating Insignia each year. Produced without regard to quantity and with only one goal in mind – to make the best wine possible each vintage
  • 96 POINTS! Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    “An amazing, inky purple color offers up notes of pen ink, white flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur. Nicely coiled, its tense, but rich and extracted palate is full-bodied with layers of concentrated fruit, well-integrated wood, acidity and tannin, and a finish of a good 40-45 seconds. This stunner should hit its prime in 5-6 years and last 30-40 years.”
